This Twitter exchange takes place between Michael Moore and Phil Knight, the CEO of NIke.  It is specifically referring to a clip in “The Big One” documentary during which Moore challenges Knight to a foot race.  The gist is that if Moore wins, then Knight has to construct a Nike factory in Detroit.

Phil Knight v Michael Moore

@philknight Scared to lose a little race to a big man? Run for Detroit!

#jobrace  #detroitjobs  #manupnike

@michaelmoore Apologies, but Nike does not partake in bets or unprofessional behavior of any kind.

#nikestrong  #businessfirst

@philknight How would you like to be treated as “professionally” as your Indonesian factory workers?

#fightfortruth  #exposeknight   #occupynike

@michaelmoore FYI- Nike is a member of several organizations whose proprietary aim is to ensure the wellbeing of all stakeholders.

@philknight You do know that joining an ethics committee and being an active member are completely different, right?
